Photos of the Day: Parrot’s Bebop Drone

November 19, 2014 12:38 pm | by WDD Staff | News | Comments

The Bebop is part remote-control flyer and part robot. It has a host of sensors — including pressure, accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer — to help it fly stable, hover in the air, and take off and land smoothly without assistance. The AR.Drone has those, too, but Bebop adds a built-in GPS that tells Bebop where it ...
